J – Tea A Drink To Go With Jam and Bread

Welcome to letter J and to this year’s Theme:

 The Glories of Tea With Stepheny

An endearing song that we learned while watching The Sound of Music, how many times?

While having tea with me today, I think we should all line up and sing with the short video above. If all else fails, we can take our act on the road. Afterward, I hope you will tell me which jam you prefer with your tea. Raspberry is my favorite. Homemade jam is a treat, but the famous companies that made jams and curd, are delicious to0. A beautiful cup, a choice of tea, a scone, clotted cream, and jam. Isn’t it lovely to be together and enjoy?

    I agree…that green leaf tea cup is outstanding! Wow! The last jam I made was a Blood Orange, Raspberry and Ginger jam! YUMMY! Made it in December when the Blood Oranges are available! Cheers!

    YES to raspberry jam. They look delicious!

  4. Raspberry is my favorite, too – sweet with just a hint of tart. And the color and texture are just so perfect as well. I usually take my tea with toast because I’m too lazy to make scones, but looking at these lovely photos has me rethinking my afternoon plans…

    • Aren’t we all something with our ‘if only’ list of things we’d like to do but the extra trouble puts us off. Find a good bakery and buy a few even if you didn’t make them. Think of me with the first bite and know I am smiling.

    Marmelade is my favourite. And I love a good scone. I’m experimenting with making my own. Not there yet (I still have on my mouth the tast of a beautifull scone I hate in Oxford a couple of years ago), but I’m working on it.
